ANT 2700 - South Asia Through Ethnography (3)


When Offered: Spring
GEN ED: Social Science Designation; Liberal Studies Experience
This course explores human life in South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka) through ethnographic and culture historical accounts by anthropologists and others. Attending to both similarities and differences among South Asian peoples, the course offers breadth through a survey of general topics (family, religion, caste, gender, colonialism, politics, etc.) as it also scrutinizes in depth a specific topic of contemporary concern, such as untouchability, ethnic strife, religious nationalism, postcolonialism, the South Asian diaspora, or globalization.
